BBC Learning English 6 Minute English Staycation 6 Minute English © bbclearningenglish.com 2009 Page 1 of 5 Kate: Hello, I'm Kate Colin and today I'm joined by Jackie Dalton. Hi Jackie. Jackie : Hi Kate Kate: Jackie, I believe you've just got back from holiday haven't you. How was it? Jackie : It was great thank you - I had a very relaxing time. I did lots of reading and some skiing. Kate: Sounds wonderful, but these days more and more of us are considering whether we can actually justify the cost of a holiday abroad and the idea of going absolutely nowhere is actually becoming quite appealing. A 'staycation' is a new phrase which is combination of the expressions 'stay' (at home)' and 'vacation'. Jackie : Well, yes I have heard of staycations, but to be honest I can't say it is something that really appeals to me because I like going on holiday to see other cultures, to listen to new languages and eat different food. Just to get away from my normal day to day life once in a while. I think that's what holidays are about. Kate : Well to some people it is, but before we go any further, I'm going to ask my question for this week. Which country is the top location for British people to go on holiday at the moment? a) Spain b) France c) Turkey
